Gary recycled a Tears For Fears hit and got a Xmas #1!


Gary Jules is an American singer-songwriter, best known for his cover of Mad World by Tears For Fears. It became the U.K. Christmas number-one single in ’03.

Following the worldwide success, Gary kept selling his own CDs on CD Baby as well as the songs being released through a record label.

CD Baby made Gary some serious cash out of this mad world and gave the aspiring artist a hot tip – Don’t sign the first contract you see!

Unfortunately, Gary Jules never wrote any tunes on par with Mad World, or realized that he could have just recorded more covers!

He may have cracked the CD-selling side of his business model, but he didn’t realize that the general public liked him, and all he had to do was feed the beast!

Or maybe, he didn’t like what he saw once the veil was lifted and the music industry revealed itself to him.
